Restaurant with typical Trentino cuisine,
organic products and items coming from local sources
Your holiday at the epOche Hotel Zanella is a holiday full of taste.
The cuisine of our 3-star hotel’s restaurant is a return to the origins, a trip through Trentino’s food and wine traditions. We value our area and its uniqueness in bringing freshness, originality and passion to your table.
For this reason, we source from manufacturers close to us as much as possible and prefer "ORGANIC" products. we organize tastings of wines, cheeses and cold cuts from Trentino in our hotel.
We also pay attention to those with special dietary needs. We have gluten-free products, vegetarian dishes and some vegan dishes.
Breakfast is served every day from 7:30am to 10:00am. You can enjoy: jams, honey and ORGANIC cereals; Trentino butter and grana cheese, cold cuts, bread made with sourdough, homemade desserts, fresh fruit and much more.
The coffee is Omkafè which is a roasted and homemade coffee by the Martinelli family in Riva del Garda.
We do not have a restaurant service at lunch but we can make packet lunches for your excursions. Otherwise you can have a first course, salads or toast at our bar.
Dinner: your encounter with
Trentino’s food and wine
Trentino’s flavors and Lake Garda’s cuisine await you at table in the evening.
Homemade pasta with ORGANIC flour is often the undisputed protagonist with strangolapreti, canederli, spatzlen and pappardelle. The sauces are with mushrooms, meat sauce, seasonal vegetables that our chef picks directly from his garden. Carpaccio and salted meat, a selection of cheeses and cold cuts and assorted vegetable buffet are our starters.
We have piglet with apples and pine nuts, trout and char as well as other kinds of meat or vegetarian dishes on our main course. Vegan burgers and gluten-free dishes are also available.
You can always choose between 3 first courses and 3 second courses. Our kitchen is ready to prepare baby food or adjust some dishes on the menu to your children’s tastes upon request.
Our 3-star hotel has a well-kept cellar. We chose wines according to a list made at the time of the Habsburg Empire of which Nago was a part of. The list was made to keep track of wine production in Alto Garda. We went through it and chose a selection of wines that reflect our area. So, you can also taste wines from ancient varieties of vines such as the "Foia tonda".
Moreover, the epOche Hotel Zanella bears the words "O che vin o che bon" in its coat of arms, being born as an inn and tavern. We do not miss any opportunity to enhance our history by providing excellent services. Chardonnay and Merlot are our home wines which are bottled by Pravis winery in Lasino, a family-run business that has cultivated vines and enhanced our area for over 40 years.
A bar that enhances the Trentino area
The bar inside the epOche Hotel Zanella is open from 8:00am to 11:00pm.
You will find two versions of traditional cocktails here: the classic version and the Trentino reinterpreted version.
Since many excellent liqueurs and wines are produced in Trentino, we chose to use them for our cocktails. So, you can enjoy an "Americano" with the Vermouth of our area.
We have the whole line of Trentino grappa and many homemade beers from local microbreweries to finish our after-dinner time in the best possible way. The real pleasure is taking a chilled beer when you return from a long walk or a challenging excursion.
In addition, we offer top quality wine tastings this year thanks to Coravin.
There is also always something available for a quick lunch and the possibility to enjoy a mixed platter of cold cuts and cheeses.
Food and wine tours
Borgo dei Posseri’s winery in Ala is just a little over 30 minutes by car from us.
There you can take a special tour of the winery and discover different local wines.
The route is indeed in the winery but primarily on the paths through the vineyards and you can walk as far as 12km. In every vineyard among clearings, woods and farmsteads, sip the wine produced directly from those vines.
You are given a wine glass and a map at the beginning of the tour and thanks to this map, you will follow a "multisensory" path, full of colors, scents and flavors.
In the end you can buy the wine or wines you liked the most.
